Comment: I just want to say thank you for being here! I have a couple of
friends who forward every stupid email they get, and I use your site all
the time to get them to stop! You guys are great! Thank you! Thank you!
Comment: I am writing to thank you for your site. I rely on your
information heavily and will check all e-mails before forwarding. Your
site is a valuable resource and I commend you for maintaining it updated.
Comment: I just received a secret shopper letter with a check in the
amount of $2950.00. Your article was very helpful, it stated exactly what
this company wanted me to do.
People need to remember that if it sounds too good to be true, it is.
I just want to thank you for your wonderful website !
It's truly a great site, i use it a lot, and really appreciate having a
place to go to , to verify all the wacky, weird, and ridiculous internet
things that get passed around...
You're doing a great service to the internet users of the world :-)
Comment: You guy's are amazing! Every time I get an off-the-wall e-mail
or political e-mail (especially) I check it out on your site. 9x out of
10 the e-mail is bogus. I LOVE fowarding your link to the person that
sent it with a comment "check it out on Snopes before you send it". It
ticks me off with all the irresponsible e-mails I get that are intended to
get people rilled up and angry. I don't have a problem with getting
rilled up and angry with the govt., immigration, etc. but you gotta pick &
choose your fights carefully and you better be darn sure what your
fighting for is TRUE!! I hope you guy's (& gal?) are making tons of money
from your site. You deserve it with all the research you do to seperate
the "bull" from the "true". A LOYAL user of your site
Comment: Dear Barbara and David,
I want to thank you for all the work you do to give us this website. I
can't tell you how many times I have received a not-quite-true sounding
email, and the first thing I do, and tell others to do before sending
and/or believing it, is to "Always Snopes it."
I read your story in a Readers Digest recently, about how you do all the
work and research yourselves.
I commend you for debunking some of these ridiculous rumors spread by
dimwits who believe everything they read.
Comment: Your website is the best urban legend site there is! I use it all
the time and there is always new stories on to keep me interested.
Whenever i need to research a legend or story i always use Snopes. I have
been a fan of this site for years now. Keep up the good work, you really
have a brilliant website here ^_^
Comment: You have the best web site ever. It has allowed me to sort
through all the bogus emails I get and only forward the accurate ones.
There is so much missinformation out there, it is unbelievable - much of
Just a very short note to extend my appreciation.
Comment: Thanks for the information on the 'dropped chalk' story. As a
Christian I value sites which highlight whether a story is true or not. Of
course I'm sure we have our differences; however I think its right to give
credit where credit is due. So, thanks for your informative service in
this way. I think evangelicals ( yes, of which I am one ) can if they're
not careful; allow the circulation of stories that appear plausible but
are in fact found out to me no more than perhaps an inspirational rumour.
My opinion is that if people doubt the resurrection of Jesus Christ that
they are unlikely to have a faith that lasts if it is based on simply an
unbroken piece of chalk. Kin d regards friends
Comment: Hi. My name is XXXXX XXXXXXX, and I have just read the
article about the "cattle guards". I receive emails from your site every
weekend, and while I enjoy them all and find some very informative, this
one really turned my laugh box over. I would just like to go on record as
saying it would be great if some of these were true. I mean the ones that
are funnies made against some of these people. You guys really brighten up
part of my day. Thanks for all the work and research that you put into
May God bless you and your's
Comment: I just want to thank you for your work on this site. I have used
it so many times over the last couple of years. Today I received an email
supposedly from "Paypal" saying that something was unusual with my
account. There was unusual activity. I get several emails like this
regarding 'suspicious activity' for my bank chequing account every year.
I forward them to my bank. So, when this one came today I checked your
site and bingo found your article on Paypal fraud.
You do important work and it is appreciated.
Comment: thank you sooooo much for creating this site--I just love it
because it puts to rest things I have read on line--God Bless each of you
and again a heart felt thanks!!!!
Comment: I haven't written for quite a while, as I know you're inundated
with messages, but wanted to let you know that I remain a faithful urban
legend fact-checker, and snopes.com is my most well-trusted and
You're doing the cyberworld a great service and I greatly appreciate it.
This message was inspired by my receipt today of an email with the
reassuring line "I checked on snopes.com and this is for real!" You've
become an icon!
Keep up the good work.
Comment: Thank you for being a reliable site to confirm the information I
receive from others. Thank you. What you are doing is deeply rooted in the
way business has been done in America; with integrity!
Comment: I have seen this e-mail several times over the years and I
decided to look it up on snopes.com. I enjoyed this read and compliment
the author Barbara Mikkelson for being able to clarify the diverse mixture
of myth, legend, logic and fact. I am comfortable with her reasoning and
insight and her ability to call things what they are. With this, as with
all her posts I have read, I detect no partisanship or personal influence
what so ever. Just the facts as best as she can produce them.
Thank you for all your efforts and obvious hard work. The internet is a
better place because of you.
Comment: I was so pleased with the navigation of this site that I have to
thank you. In trying to win an argument with my boyfriend about the seven
year tax exempt status on immigrants rumor, I went to this site. I was led
directly to the proper article without even having to use the search box
just by following the links that made sense. Thank you again, and keep up
the good work!
Comment: I love your site! Before forwarding any emails, I always check
here for validity. Some of the emails even include the statement that the
information was already verified through Snopes, but I don't fall for that
either. Thanks for all of your wonderful information!
Comment: Dear Snopes,
The internet is a wonderful source of information and truth, but
intrinsically, is also open to false information, and sometimes outright
Thank you for providing an EXCELLENT site where I can go to check out data
and stories. You have never let me down!
Whenever I find a false story, I always send a note with your link to the
originator, to correct the false information, and most of the time I get a
reply with a big 'Thank You'!, and you get a new customer.
You are honest, thorough, and professional, and so I recommend you to all
my friends and contacts.
Keep up the EXCELLENT work!
Comment: I cannot thank you enough for the service you provide. I rely on
you to fact check the many email alerts I am sent each week. My friends
and family must be so tired of getting a reply email from me telling them
that he info they sent is fraudulent and linking them to your site.
Keep up the good work! You provide an invaluable service to the community
Comment: You all do a great job of cutting through all of the foolishness
that is circulated on the internet. I send you address out at least once a
day in an efforts to disspell, clarify, and correct a e-mails that I
recive each day. Just a note to say, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!
